Q: I haven't touched a baseball in 30 years and am afraid I will make a fool of myself. Will I?
A: This is by far our most popular concern amongst new campers. We can't reiterate enough that NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY! We have campers of all ages and absolutely all abilities. The only prerequisite for this camp is that you are a fan of the New York Yankees!
Q: How can I ensure my uniform will fit?
A: Upon completion of your registration form, our highly experienced clubhouse manager will be able to 'size you up' for your full Yankee uniform with the measurements you have provided. They are surprisingly accurate!
Q: Do I need a rental car?
A: Transportation to and from the hotel and Tampa International Airport is provided for you and your guests during the weeklong and women's mini-camp. Transportation to and from George M. Steinbrenner Field and all social events will also be provided during your stay. It is up to you if you would like to rent a car.
